tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  August 19, 2013 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
>> i assume your cable is back on now and i would appreciate you not wanting to miss "breaking bad," i understand that. next time your cable is out, leave the 911 operators alone and just call us on "the ridiculist." that does it for us. erin burnett "outfront" starts next.
8:01 pm
next, idaho burning threatening to destroy thousands of homes. we'll go to the scene for the latest 37 plus there has been a huge jump in wild animal attack this is summer. why? and a new and disturbing development tonight in the hannah anderson investigation. her kidnapper left all of his money to one person. we have that for you. let's go "outfront". good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, a developing story. idaho burning. a dangerous wildfire out of control and threatening to destroy thousands of hopes including multimillion-dollar homes of celebrities like arnold schwarzenegger and tom hanks. here you just see a lot of fire. it's the beaver creek fire about six miles south of ketchum. it's just a few miles away from the resort town of sun valley. ted rowlands is in haley tonight. and when i look at those maps, it's right there along the highway. what are you seeing?
8:02 pm
>> reporter: well, it has been growing so quickly. and it is huge. you mentioned at 100,000 acres or 1,000 firefighters plus. we're expecting new numbers in the next few hours and the hope is that they had a good day today and have more containment. but there are 5,000 homes that are potentially in danger here. and you mentioned a lot of them are very high dollar homes. in fact private insurance companies -- or insurance companies have hired private firefighters to come in here and specific protect people's homes because they are so expensive. >> i'm curious about that. how is that playing out with the firefighters and all the teams in place fighting this? is this something that they welcome or does this cause a problem for them when they're fighting the fire and also a sense of unfairness? >> reporter: you might think it's chaotic, but they say they work together quite well. according to the command center here, they do keep in contact with radios because they are running the show here and if there is trouble, they will order those people out. and they say most of these guys that work for the insurance companies are former firefighters and they're just doing this on the side or current firefighters. and they make it work. one person said we could use the help, no way we could protect 5,000 homes. so having them out here does help.
8:03 pm
>> some of the numbers and when you see how huge the fire is, close to unprecedented scale, the containment numbers have been incredibly small. >> reporter: and they had a lot of trouble this weekend. it exploded friday and saturday. today was a good day because there was cloud cover, it was a little cooler. and we're less than 10% containment right now, but as i said, we're expecting fresh numbers in the next few hours. and the hope is that today was a good day for firefighters looking forward, they're expecting rain and they're hoping to really capitalize on that tuesday and wednesday. >> ted rowlands, thank you very much. insurance companies and wealthy people hiring their own firefighters. something we've seen at a few firefighters now. our second story, big american companies making big dollars off of american aid money to egypt.
8:04 pm
as you know, nearly 1,000 people have died in the violent uprising in egypt over the past week. and now more than half of americans say the united states should protest by cutting off the $1.3 billion in military aid that america forks over to egypt each and every single year. but the obama administration said today it hasn't made its final decision on aid and its review the situation is still, quote, ongoing. one incredibly powerful group wants to keep the money flow to egypt. everything is resting on that for them. chris lawrence has the
8:05 pm
"outfront" investigation. >> reporter: the obama administration could say enough's enough. and cut aid to egypt. but some american companies want to keep that money flowing because they are the ones cashing in. >> you're buying u.s. equipment from u.s. contractors. >> reporter: the u.s. doesn't cut a check to egypt. it deposits the aid in an account at the federal reserve bank. that money pays american defense contractors to build the weapons and parts for egypt. that includes $400 million to general dynamics for tank kits. and $2.5 billion to lockheed for f-16s. big companies got these contracts in part by sending legions of lobbyists to capitol hill. they reminded lawmakers that if they can't build weapons for egypt, all those small town suppliers from lima, ohio to oxford, michigan will get buried. >> joe with company x has made this particular piece of a tank for 20 years and that's what he does. he's very good at it. but if i don't give them an order for six months, i'm not sure what's going to happen to old joe and his workforce. >> reporter: jim colby used to control the purse strings on egypt. he heard that pitch year after year. and it worked. >> the contractors have a vested interest in keeping the process
8:06 pm
going forward. >> reporter: colby says cutting the aid -- >> will end up costing the taxpayers a lot of money and getting nothing in return. >> so the aid gets cut off, taxpayers lose money. the numbers are incredible. lockheed martin, $2.5 billion they have resting on aid continuing to egypt. what do the companies say to the criticisms that you don't care about u.s. policy or right or wrong, you care about dollars and cents? >> lockheed and boeing said we're honoring our contracts in good faith, which they are. these were agreements the u.s. government signed to send these parts to egypt. they also say they don't want to comment on what the u.s. government may or may not do. but erin, bottom line, look, even though only about half of this year's $1.2 billion has been already put into that egypt account, withholding the other $600 million doesn't really save that money. and in fact it may cost some jobs. >> all right, a fascinating report.
8:07 pm
this is just into cnn. literally just this moment. we have new pictures of prince george. brand you new images of will and kate with their baby boy who is not quite a month old. they are the first official photos we have seen of the new prince. they were taken by kate's father at the middleton family home and in case you are wondering, that is the couple's cocker-spaniel, his name is lupo. this comes on the same day we're hearing prince william's first interview since his son was born. he talked with max foster. talked about fatherhood and being a new parent. >> i think i was on such a high anyway, so was katherine, about george that we were happy to show him off to anyone and proclaim that he's the best looking or the best everything. >> he talked about the moment everyone staring at them,
8:08 pm
something about that rang so genuine and nice. don't miss the special prince william's passion, it is in september, max foster with the first interview with the prince. still to come, speaking of the royal family, shocking new claims about princess diana's death. we'll ask her personal chef why some say it was murder. plus the latest from the bob filner investigation. where is san diego's mayor? and then a huge jump in animal attacks this summer. jeff corwin will explain why. and carolyn kennedy forced to disclose her financial information because she wants to be ambassador to japan. we'll tell you how much the kennedy heir is sitting on. . it even pulled strings with the stoplights. my ambulance talks with smoke alarms and pilots and stadiums.
8:09 pm
but, of course, it's a good listener too. [ female announcer ] today cisco is connecting the internet of everything. so everything works like never before.
8:10 pm
8:11 pm
8:12 pm
our third story "outfront," a developing story. a major closed door meeting happening right now in san diego that could decide the fate of mayor filner. filner, we've been talking a lot about him, but he actually has not been seen in public for more than three weeks. this has not stopped the allegations of sexual harassment from piling up and more and more women coming forward to speak out against the embattled mayor. and could this be the end of the mayor? is this what's happening at this meeting or what? >> possibly. you talk to sources inside, they say maybe with a big capital m. but mediation does take time. but this could be the very beginning of that. so what are we talking about here? we know that this meeting is happening right now. this is a mediation.
8:13 pm
we know it's members of the city council, city attorney as well as the mayor's office and, erin, this is a major meeting. this is the first time everyone has been together in one room to talk about filner. >> and of course he has so far utterly resisted any calls for resignation. he would seem to have a serious problem. but he hasn't been seen in three weeks. how is he still the mayor? >> a lot of people are wondering that. how is it possible? under san diego city charter, he is known as a strong mayor. it's very difficult to remove the mayor of san diego. the city attorney in fact said it is easier to get rid of the president of the united states versus the mayor of san diego. because of the way the city charter is written. and we should point out the mayor actually has some supporters. there are a few. we saw them come out in public today. check this out. this is a rally in support of mayor filner. it was a very small rally, but still a rally in support of him. and listen to what one of them said. >> i have not been the recipient of sloppy kisses.
8:14 pm
and i have met mr. filner on many occasions. there are others who are, but i've never had that opportunity. but i do know that bob is fussy, he's careful, but he's also fair. >> i don't really know what to say to that, but that is someone who supports him. there are always two sides to the story and that's what we've consistently heard from filner's side. >> thank you very much. obviously a countdown for what kind of a major decision will happen there. one the whole country is watching. now our fourth story, animal attacks. they're on the rise. a 14-year-old boy is recovering after a shark attack in hawaii just days after a german tourist lost an arm. the ninth shark attack in hawaii this rear. and five bear attacks in less
8:15 pm
than a week. what's behind the rise in attacks? jeff, we were looking at this and sometimes you see these things and it feels like things are on the rise but they're not really on the rise. but at least according to the map and studies we've seen, these attacks are more of them this year. >> we're seeing an interesting trend, but i think what we have to remember is that we're kind of looking at this the very small limited window. the truth is that attacks aren't that much higher. and these are animals that frequent these waters specifically the sharks off hawaii. and when human beings, which are the number one terrestrial predator are sharing habitat with the number one water predator, there is also that opportunity that something can go wrong. >> last year 11, this year 9 so far. but i guess it could be there is more proximity or something like that. what about, though, the survival? that is what sort of amazing
8:16 pm
people about the sharks and bear attacks. 12-year-old girl in michigan attacked by a bear last week. and she actually talked about how she made the decisions of what she did when the bear was attacking her. i want to play it for you. >> all of a sudden the bear got me, put me down on the ground and started clawing at me. so i was petting it. i don't know where that came from. but i just thought maybe if i petted it, it would like me. that did not work. so then it got me again. and then i heard that you should play dead. so that's what i did. >> she was smart. i can't imagine she was thinking all that as that moment was happening. but what do you think about what she did, is that the right thing to do? >> well, certainly worked. and i can't imagine that terrifying situation, here you are minding your own business, going for a jog, playing about.
8:17 pm
and all of a sudden you're confronted by one of the greatest land going predators in our country. and i think she did do the right thing. you know, what you don't want to do whenever you're being pursued by a predator whether in the land or the water is to try to run away because you just can't. so you want to carefully pull yourself back if possible, but if that predator is still pursuing you such as a bear, you want to potentially go into play dead mode or perhaps if your life is on the line, you need to defend yourself. and it seems like she did it all of these things. it's very important that we remember that human beings aren't the natural food source or prey for either sharks or bears. but unfortunately, as human beings invade wild habitat, opportunities for conflict like this tend to increase. >> yeah. it's amazing. let me ask you about sharks. people like me don't go in the water because every time i see a shadow, i think it's a shark.
8:18 pm
which is a silly thing. i know statistically of course the chances are incredibly miniscule that one would be attacked by a shark. but -- >> i don't know, erin. is it silly? >> maybe that's why -- see, you just underlined -- >> i'll tell you something that may keep you out of the water for a very long time. remember, when you're in the water, whether you're along the coast of maui or in a beach off of new england or new york. >> jersey shore. >> jersey shore. you're usually never more than 100 yards away from a shark. so that's kind of startling and sobering. but look at that. we are around these animals all the time and rarely do they pursue us as something to eat. most of the time when a human being is bitten by a shark, it's the result of mistaken identity. and a lot of times when a shark is biting, it's a test bite. that's kind of, you know, interesting to hear especially in light that if you're being bit by something 14 feet long, that test bite can be rather
8:19 pm
dangerous, but human beings aren't the normal source of food for either of these animals. but as we take up their habitat, conflict like this can increase. >> i'm not going in the water. thank you very much. and i do want to mention that that 12-year-old girl, abby, who had that incredibly so possessed of mind who was attacked by that bear did the right thing. she'll be on piers morgan tonight. money and power tonight. the kennedy fortune. according to public filing, carolyn kennedy could be worth, are you ready for this, nearly $300 million. she pulled in nearly $1 million from speaking engagements and book royalties alone, but that's nothing compared to the rest of her money that comes from dividends and interests from various financial holdings. kennedy was required to disclose her assets as part of the nomination process because she was nominated to be ambassador to japan. kennedy said she would resign from a few nonprofits.
8:20 pm
we should note of course like many people who get some of these key ambassadorships, she is a major donor and friend of the president. coming up next, shocking new details about the man who held hannah anderson captive. we'll tell you who he left all of his money to. plus lindsay lohan broke her silence about addiction. did a rehab center exploit the situation for financial gain? we saw something in this that stunned us. we'll put it to you.

baseball alex rodriguez is claiming that the yankees tried to sabotage him. sabotage his career, a career that could be cut short because of accusations that he used performance enhancing drugs. jason carroll is out front. >> reporter: call him the most controversial player in baseball today. drawing admiration from loyal fans -- >> i think he should be left alone. i think he's a fantastic person. >> reporter: -- hatred from others. >> i think it's kind of a joke that he's been busted. the proof is there. >> reporter: yankees third baseman alex rodriguez is baseball's highest paid player. the yankees agreeing in 2007 to a ten year $207 million contract. yet he's under investigation for using performance enhancing drugs, one which led to an unprecedented 211 game suspension. now under appeal. a player seemingly at war on the field -- >> whether you like me or hate
8:25 pm
me -- >> reporter: -- and off. >> when you're in the proverbial big league, you may get hit by a fast ball every now and then . >> reporter: but now more serious allegations, his attorney says major league baseball and the yankees have been trying to sabotage rodriguez. he points to this mri from october of last year which says shows a tear in rodriguez' left hip. a copy of the written diagnosis also provided to cnn. >> now, the amazing part of that is that was never shared with alex rodriguez at the time. >> what do you mean? >> he wasn't told about it. >> reporter: given clearance to play by the yankees when he was hurt and he also alleges randy levine made it clear to the doctor chosen by the yankees he did not want rodriguez back. >> what randy levine said to dr.
8:26 pm
kelly was that i would rather alex never step on the field again. in so many words. >> when you say in so many words, what do -- do you know what words were used? >> my understanding was there was a word that's not fit for tv that was used in that sentence, as well. >> reporter: a spokesman for dr. kelly could not confirm the conversation. major league baseball responded by saying mr. tacopina continues to avoid the only relevant question, did rodriguez use performance enhancing drugs. the rest of what he says is to distract people from the real issues. >> as an attorney, you know it's very simple statement. my client did not use performance enhancing drugs. >> because there is a confidentiality clause -- >> reporter: there is a confidentiality agreement in place while rodriguez appeals his suspension. and mlb says it has evidence rodriguez used peds allegedly provided by biogenesis.
8:27 pm
>> what can you tell us about what relationship, if any, that rodriguez had with biogenesis? >> clearly -- again, there are certain things we can't get into. but clearly there was a relationship. the fact is -- >> what kind of relationship? >> cutting relationship. >> reporter: he says he cannot go i don't understand what a consulting relationship exactly means. jason carroll, new york. still to come, new claims princess diana may have been murdered. her personal chef is "outfront" to abc our questions. plus the world's most famous nerd gets hacked. and what does a $27 million car look like? what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally.

welcome back. we start with stories where we focus on reporting from the front lines and i want to begin with mark zuckerberg. his facebook page was hacked. in the message, the hacker apologized for violating his privacy but said he had no choice because he had attempted to notify facebook of the vulnerability and the company didn't respond. the facebook will pay you if you're successful. they do this to try to streng
8:32 pm
strengthen their site. facebook says the hacker violated the terms because, you know, he hacked in to mark zuckerberg's facebook page. the hacker says to cnn that he didn't do it for the money. >> i asked them that this is report as a white hat, i never asked them that i want $4,000 or $5,000. i didn't deal with them like that. okay, i found a vulnerability. this is your site, you have an exploited website. deal with it, guys. >> facebook says they get hundreds of reports about bugs every day. obviously they are far from immune to hacking. an "outfront" update on caitlin hunt, the teen charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl. obviously the 14-year-old was technically under age at the time. the attorney's office says it has rescinded the potential plea deal that would have charged hunt with a felony, but would have taken away jail time for her and not made her register as a sex offender. prosecutors say hunt and the quote/unquote child victim sent thousands of text messages after hunt was ordered not to have contact with her. it included photos sexual in
8:33 pm
nature. and hunt secretly met with the victim. by all account they were in a consensual relationship. could the next iphone be available in gold color? it could be. according to all things d, the iphone will be elegant, white face and gold toned back plate. this is just one of the many mockups that apple fans have been creating. analysts say apple will announce a new iphone next month and some are playing the place this could be popular is in developing markets about. it has been 744 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. it was another rough day for stocks. dow down 72. in danger of slipping below 15,000. but again, the emphasis should still be on the fact that the markets are 15% to 20% for the year. now our sixth story
8:34 pm
outfront. a very strange new development in the hannah anderson kidnapping case. the case of horrors. a member of anderson's family was the beneficiary of her abductor's life insurance policy. so let me explain. james lee dimaggio, a friend of the family, a friend of hannah's and of her parent's, and then he was killed in a shoot-out with police. he named bernice anderson, hannah's grandmother, as beneficiary of the policy that dimaggio had, and of course he's the man who murdered hannah's mother, hannah's brother, shot hannah's dog, horrific things. let's bring in jeff gardere. so he had a will and he left all the money to hannah's grandmother. >> well, it could be that of course he wanted to leave the money to hannah. we know of his obsession with her. knew it was socially inappropriate to do so. that's not a blood relative. key have left the money to his own sister, but instead left to the paternal grandmother. and i think it tells me a little bit more about how obsessed this
8:35 pm
individual was with the family, how embedded he was with that particular family. how everything was about life with that family. >> it certainly does seem to show some level of obsession, which of course we've seen before on the day of the abduction, that there were 13 back and forth calls or texts between dimaggio and hannah. this fits with that. what does this mean for hannah? >> i think this is something that we talked about the survivor guilt. how do you deal with that situation, knowing that that money may have been according to a spokesperson earmarked for hannah herself. and it's blood money. so i think it makes hannah, her grandmother, anyone in that family even much more enraged with this individual, that he would do these horrific things and --
8:36 pm
>> it shows planning, too. >> it shows planning. did he go back as early as 2011 when the insurance policy came out, was this something he intended to do to try to hannah in whatever way he could, was it a reparation knowing that there would be mayhem? the more i think about this, the more i'm convinced this was a suicide mission. he would spend whatever time he could before he died, but he knew he was going die and he knew what he can do would end up in his death and maybe hers too. >> every development in that story is horrible. murder, conspiracy or tragic accident? nearly 16 years after princess diana was killed in a car crash, there are new claims that british special forces may have been involved in her death. according to the sun people newspaper britain, the allegations come from the former in-laws of a former special forces sniper. erin mclaughlin is outside scotland yard. what amazed me, you'd think the police would say we dismiss this out of hand you can but you they didn't.
8:37 pm
how seriously are they investigating the claim? >> reporter: this is the first information that scotland yard has assessed for its relevance and credibility since the inclusion of the inquest into princess diana's death in 2008. it's serious enough to assess. the moment not serious enough to reopen an investigation. and they're saying this is not part of operation paget, an investigation into conspiracy theories. that investigation concluded that she died as a result of the gross negligence of her driver as well as the surrounding paparazzi. so how this reported seven page handwritten letter by the ex-in-laws of a former sniper could possibly alter those conclusions, well, that remains to be seen. >> thank you. now, conspiracies about princess diana's death have swirled.
8:38 pm
it's one of those moments that if you were alive at the time, you remember where you were. i remember i was standing at my dresser for college preseason field hockey camp when we got the news. but all these investigations have never proven anything. always come out that it was an accident. darren mcgrady knew princess diana as her former chef. thanks for taking the time. you were working for her when she passed away. it's been almost 16 years. when you heard this news, and that scotland yard was investigating it and taking it seriously, what was your reaction? >> well, it was just 16 years ago this week that i was in the kitchen at kensington palace planning menus for princess diana, prince william, prince harry's return to kensington palace. so it came as a real shock. more so that the british police scotland yard were actually talking about this because it gave it a sense of legitimacy.
8:39 pm
>> and princess diana, you talked to her. you were someone that she came and spoke to. she was known to be worried about the royal family and her role in it. and you talk about how she was paranoid, that someone might have been out to get her. what were some of the things that led her to believe that? >> well, during the last few months of her life, there were very few staff, just four of us there. so the princess would come in to the kitchen quite a lot and we didn't have a chauffeur in those days. so i'd actually go and fill her car with gas. and she said drive carefully, i want you to check the brakes
8:40 pm
because i think someone's tampering with my brakes. and we always, the butler and i and the maid, we just thought maybe she's being paranoid. other times she'd come in the kitchen and she'd have a new cell phone and she'd change these on a regular basis because she thought someone was tapping into her phone. and she did actually say in the kitchen do you get those clicks on the phone when you put the phone down or when you pick the phone up. and strangely i did. >> are you someone who thinks it might not have been an accident or not? >> i always hoped it was an accident. and i still do hope it was an accident. experts are saying it can't be true, there is no evidence. but the sas are trained not
8:41 pm
leave evidence. >> all right. thank you very much, darren. we appreciate it. when comes to classic car, we have a new champion. over the weekend, a rare 1967 ferrari, it's just a car, people, but it's not just a car to some. it sold for $27.5 million. the most ever paid for a road vehicle at an american auction. experts say the car sold so well because it only had one previous owner and there is only ten of them in existence and it's in great condition. i mean, those are all nice things. but $27.5 million? anyway, that brings plea to tonight's number which is $240,000. that's actually, you know, about i guess somewhere around what it costs to buy some new ferrari. i don't know. but it was the top bid for this according to a listing on ebay.
8:42 pm
this used to be a 1996 ford fiesta lx. so the ad includes a number of shots of the car from different angles describing the vehicle as an up finished restoration that need as few odds and independents to bring to mint show condition. and just before the ad went down this weekend, the top bid was almost a quarter million dollars. so new ferrari, crushed ford fiesta. despite some of the reports we've read, we really can't believe that was real. but stranger things have happened. like dozens of bags of doritos handed out by police at the hemp fest this weekend showed up on ebay with starting bids of 50 bucks. people, it's a bag of doritos. and lots of them are selling for more than that. on some level sadly there is always is sucker somewhere. if you put something up for auction, someone somewhere will buy it. still to come, the olympic blade run their shot and killed his girlfriend indicted. plus lindsay lohan talked about addiction with oprah winfrey last night. but a rehab center had a lot of ads in that. and corporations regularly taking photos of you and your home. so who the biggest spy on earth? we're back with tonight's outer circle where we reach out to our sources around the world. tonight we go south africa where oscar pistorius was indicted today for the murder of his girlfriend, model reeva steenkamp. he's nicknamed the blade runner and has admitting to shooting steenkamp claiming he mistook her for an intruder. you but the fact don't add up for some people. >> reporter: today in court oscar pistorius crie and tha the state with premeditated murder. that's the strongest charge they can bring so is the state's case is water tight, that they're confident, or is it an indication that they perhaps are overreaching themselves more than 100 names were on that charge sheet. so what we can be sure of then is that this will be a very long trial. erin. >> thanks to you, robin. tonight lindsay low man's rehab facility is in the spotlight and we wanted to look that the because during her interview with oprah last night, cliff side malibu wasn't only mentioned several times during the interview, commercials for the firm also aired many times during the broadcast. and who is the biggest spy on earth? with centurylink as your trusted it partner, you'll experience reliable uptime for the network and services you depend on.

8:47 pm
can bring against him. it carries a minimum sentence of 25 years. so is this an indication that the state's case is water tight, that they're confident, or is it an indication that they perhaps are overreaching themselves? what was also key about today's indictment was the number of witnesses the state intends to call. more than 100 names were on that charge sheet. so what we can be sure of then is that this will be a very long trial. erin. >> thanks to you, robin. tonight lindsay lohan's rehab facility is in the spotlight and we wanted to look that the because during her interview with oprah last night, cliff side malibu wasn't only mentioned several times during the interview, commercials for the firm also aired many times during the broadcast. >> 83% of addicts who go through treatment relapse within a year. at cliff side malibu, our treatment program is so successful, we guarantee it.
8:48 pm
>> interesting they guarantee it because when we talked to them today, they said they don't make any promises of easy recovery or any promise they can make you sober. was malibu taking advantage of low plan by advertising during the special or was take brilliant marketing move? great to have all of you with us. their spokesperson said we review all advertisers spots, this was approved for air. now, look, i don't know, but i know on this show if we're covering a specific topic, we check our ad block. we pull it if we don't think it's appropriate. should they have done that? >> it hurts their credibility, but their ratings are on low, oprah's network is so hard to fine, it's like finding edward snowden. it's impossible. and oprah by her own admission said she nearly had a nervous break down because of the ratings struggle. so oprah is saying we're having enough trouble getting advertisers as it is, but for the bottom line, not a bad way to go. >> so sometimes you pick the
8:49 pm
money. >> oprah winfrey's greatest asset is her credibility. so if the editorial in-telling grit difference the show is compromised in this way, it will cost her a hell of a lot more money than she will gain by having the ads on the show. maybe it hurts her credibility but it's not a bad way to go. sometimes you pick the money. >> oprah winfrey's asset is her credibility. if the editorial input is compromised, it's going to cost her a hell of a lot more than she'll gain by having the show.

>> i do want to say one thing. there's a huge number of americans who are substance abuser, who are alcohol and drug dependent. it's staggering. the thing that really causes a knot in your stomach is the idea that there are a lot of desperate folks out there, folks who are big fans of oprah, they may have a -- >> she's been in and out of rehab six times. >> exactly. >> like a lot of people. >> exactly. and you're tugging at the heart strings like this and you're at a beautiful place and it makes me very nervous about what oprah is doing to those folks that love her. >> they defended their decision. they said before we can help people, we need to reach them. cable tv is an excellent way to do that. that was part of their statement.
8:52 pm
you saw the ad, 83% of people relapse in other places and they guarantee it. they will even promise that they make you sober and don't make any promise of an easy and instantaneous recovery. that doesn't match the ad. >> right. but you can get some nice sea shells and that's the things. if you had played the ad before our segment, i would have thought that you were doing an intervention on me. it's a serious thing. lindsey lohan has become kind of a punch line, sadly. i think she's very talented and i hope it does take this time. >> i think everyone does. >> there's no saying that the seventh time is a charm. but just from a media perspective, i think she has an addiction to attention. in other words, sober lindsey is boring lindsey. boring lindsey doesn't get any headlines and no headlines means no attention. i wonder if she just loves being in the headlines and it's four days out of rehab and yet she's
